The International Cricket Council (ICC) has on-screened the schedule for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 set to take place in October in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Super 12, group stage begins on 24th October and the biggest arch-rivals of all, India and Pakistan will open the WT20 event at the Dubai International Stadium.
Pakistan vs India, being the biggest rivalry of all time, is witnessing the anticipated fans from now although with the months left in for the battle.
It is pertinent to mention that the most-watched contestants no more see each other in the bilateral series amidst the cross-border tensions since birth.
The last time they faced each other was in 2012 when the men in green overpowered India in the ODI series. Since then, the two teams rival only in the ICC, ACC events. However, here is the fans’ reaction to Pakistan vs India in WT20.
